For the cost of €3, this is a worthwhile place to visit if you are looking for a cultural experience. Besides the amazing cathedral which I'll get into in a minute, it is a historical religious museum. It is, as you might expect after the Spaniards came to the island. There is not that much text around there to read about each piece so bring your phone as they have an online audio tour. It has a beautiful garden and it is easy to navigate through the area. I can't remember seeing any elevators for the tour itself so not sure how accessible for wheelchair users. It is spread on two floors with arts, collections, books and historical facts (via audio tour).

The cathedral is large and stunning on the inside and outside. For an extra €2 you can go all the way up to get a 360° view of the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, but you have to go around. We came from the backside we had no idea how large it would be inside!

The dogs you see outside are actually Canarian dogs which is where the island got its name from.

This cathedral interior is white with grey columns reaching high in the form of palm trees - it is impressive but plain. The museum of Sacred Art is average, but the entrance patio with exuberant planting is very attractive.

Fine palm tree-like pillars. Otherwise not of great interest. Entry to the adjoining Museum of religious art is included in the ticket.

Impressive views from the tower but little information on the history and architecture of the church

The entrance fee is €3.00 p.p. and is well worth it.
Beautiful interior courtyard and interesting museum with religious artifacts going back to the 15th century.
The cathedral interior is also very impressive and beautiful.
Note: When you exit the cathedral and walk around the corner you can take an elevator to the top of the bell tower for an additional
€1.50 p.p....well worth it for the best view of Las Palmas.

The cathedral is rather modest and admittedly, the main drawing power is the bell tower. Even so, the view from the top is not particularly stunning and there is only a small area in which one can move. At Euro 1.50 for the lift up I am hesitant to even recommend that expense

3 Euro entrance charge for a stark interior with a modest museum.
Nothing special but has a misleading must see advertisement

2 different sites, the curch and the tower, both worth a visit for sure. Magnificent views from the tower. And beatiful rooms and interesting paintings etc inside.

Absolutely wrong to charge to enter the main Cathedral! We were charged €3 each just to enter. I can see why the Vatican's wealth is put at between $10 billion to $15 billion. Disgusting! Shame on you! Taking from the poor as usual!

We went to see this as it was advertised as a must see place. Nothing special, more humble than the continental ones.
